I was sitting at home the other day snacking on some Bonomo Turkish Taffy and watching old episodes of Saturday Night Live on my computer. I came across an episode from the show’s fifth season—the last season with the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players. This particular episode was hosted by Teri Garr. I remembered how much I loved her in Young Frankenstein, so I knew she’d be fabulous on Saturday Night Live. And she certainly didn’t let me down!
The funniest part about the whole thing is that I was watching it on December 11th—and that just so happened to be Teri Garr’s birthday! Funny how coincidences like that happen. She was great on the show, too. She was a regular on The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour in the early 1970s, so I knew she’d do great with sketch comedy. In fact, she hosted the fabled sketch show from 30 Rock three times—in 1980, 1983, and 1985. I caught the 1980 performance, but I’m sure the other ones were just as good!
Happy belated birthday, Teri Garr! Teri did so many fun things on television and in the movies, that I think it’s only appropriate to salute her with some snappy Turkish Taffy!
